"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: Theremin on September 16, 2021, 09:07:49 AMIs there a simple explanation anywhere of what actually has to done to visit the UK at this point?I was hoping to pop over from NL, but the constantly changing regulations have me pretty baffled.

Quote from: beanheadmcginty on September 16, 2021, 10:36:12 AMI popped back to the UK from NL a couple of weeks ago and had no problems getting there or back (I went on the Eurostar). I did the following:- A week before travel I ordered a Day 2 PCR test to be delivered to my mate's house in London, it arrived there within a couple of days. Cost £50. Use this site to find one, it is really easy to use and not trying to rip you off: https://www.covid19-testing.org/travel-testing - Got a free antigen test done at one of the local clinics we have in Amsterdam less than 24 hours before setting off. Got the results emailed to me within an hour. They were in English.- Filled in the UK passenger locator form the morning before I set off. Didn't have to upload anything like Attila. Just had to put in the code number of the day 2 PCR test I had on order.- Sailed through both Amsterdam and St Pancras rail stations with nobody checking anything except my passport.- Did the day 2 PCR test at my mate's house, got drunk and forgot to post it until a day late.- Received a negative result by email a couple of days later. No one mentioned that it was late.- Had fun in the UK for a couple of weeks- Day before returning to Amsterdam discovered that NL require a negative antigen test. Quickly booked myself into a dodgy clinic in Dalston and got that done. £60 and results emailed within the hour.- Eurostar back to Amsterdam. Once again, nobody checked any paperwork except my passport at either end. I even offered to show my EU vaccination app thing and NL residency card and the border guard said "don't worry, I trust you".
Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on September 22, 2021, 07:21:38 AMWhen are the PCR test requirements being scrapped? Online fraudster Grant Shapps unhelpfully tweeted 'later in October', which is fucking unhelpful, the news reported that then it went quiet.
QuoteFrom 4 October, fully vaccinated travellers will no longer need to take a test before departing for England.From the end of October, while people will still need to take a test within two days of returning, this can be a cheaper lateral flow test rather than a PCR.
Quote from: katzenjammer on September 22, 2021, 11:55:08 AMOh thanks, and sorry for misleading people earlier. I'm betting I'm not the only one that got that wrong. Still trying to wring those last few quid out of the PCR racket
Quote from: nugget on September 22, 2021, 02:42:15 PMRegarding Pass Sanitaire, it seems you can download their app and upload your NHS vaccination proof:https://uk.ambafrance.org/Health-pass-and-vaccination-in-the-UK
Quote from: Mobbd on November 01, 2021, 03:35:41 PMThe Day 2 covid test on return was a piece of piss but annoyingly expensive at £68...
Quote from: Janie Jones on November 01, 2021, 04:03:09 PMI went to Spain for the first half of October, no problems outgoing because we're double jabbed. But we had to pay 44€ each for the 'Day 2' test before we could get home to Ldn and at Jerez airport we had to show proof that we had ordered them.
Quote from: Janie Jones on November 01, 2021, 04:03:09 PMThe (fiendishly complicated) tests were waiting on the doormat when we got home. Over 2 weeks later we still haven't done them or sent them off. We haven't been chased up. If anyone can advise whether I'd better still do the fucking thing or just forget all about it now they've got their fucking money, I'd appreciate it.
